Monday evening was a great success and this was reflected beautifully in the feedback we received, Team Rushden pupils were brilliant and I am looking forward to welcoming on board new y6’s into 7 this year. Head Girl, Connie, Deputy Head Boy, Thuso and 4 year 7 pupils Tilly Bacon, Cody Beecher, Ruby McElligott and Robert Toderasc gave incredible speeches, they were articulate, confident and informative. The school was buzzing and everyone worked really hard to make sure we delivered our best. I am very proud of how far we have come, so are the pupils and we would warmly welcome any visitor into our school to show what we do on a daily basis. It is calm, it is industrious and we are determined to be the best.

Our recent Ofsted report highlighted the following:

 Pupils say that senior leaders are everywhere and staff feel utterly supported in all that they do.

 Staff morale is high

 The ‘Team Rushden’ ethos permeates through all aspects of the school.

 Pupils and staff feel that Rushden Academy is ‘on the up’.

 There is a clear sense of collaboration and determination to improve further.

 The leadership of the quality of teaching, learning and assessment is strong.

 Pupils recognise the positive atmosphere that has been created and understand the importance of behaving well. As one pupil said, ‘We’re here to learn.’

 Pupils say that bullying is rare and they remain confident that staff would deal with it swiftly and effectively should it occur.

 Far greater emphasis is now placed on celebrating success. Pupils report a sense of ‘healthy competition’ and say that school is more enjoyable as a result.
